Visiting Lucerne during the Festival of Lights

Switzerland is one of those slightly underrated destinations, which may have a good reputation for winter sports and snowy mountains but there really is so much more to it. I've been to Switzerland many times over the last years and every single time I realize just how nice it is. The delicious food, the laid-back people, the high standard in everything you [...]

A Love Letter to Newcastle upon Tyne, England

For a few years after I left university - a good ten years ago now - I struggled to make sense of my life. In a failing relationship and lurching from one silly job to another, I moved from city to city in the UK, trying to find a place I could call home. A friend from uni impulsively asked me to move in with her in her flat in Heaton, Newcastle, and I, equa[...]

My weekend with friends at a mountain chalet

Have you ever traveled with a group of friends? I have been fantasizing of renting a chalet in the mountains and bringing a bunch of my friends.

Our magical Winter-Getaway at Kaiserlodge in Tyrol

The Kaiserlodge had popped into my feed every now and again for years already.
